  • Pacemaker Of The Heart
    The most well-known heartbeat monitoring and correcting device is used to track the rhythm of the heartbeat and controlling it by means of electrical signals. It is a small, battery operated device, placed under the collarbone by the cardiologist. Pacemaker of the heart are generally used to treat bradycardia.
    The pacemaker implantation is done by the cardiologist in such a way that the generator part of the device (containing the monitor and batteries) is placed under the collarbone of in the abdomen and the leads are connected to the chamber(s) of the heart.
    The patient may go home the same day or the next day after the pacemaker surgery depending on the medical history, age and condition.

 

  • Implantable Cardioverter – Defibrillator (ICD)
    The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is placed in the chest of the patient, near the collarbone to check and treat tachycardia or extremely fast beating of the heart that may lead to a cardiac arrest, due to insufficient supply of blood to the body.

 

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy – Defibrillator (CRT-D)
    CRT-D devices help in preventing heart failure by ensuring that the lower chambers of the heart beat in a synchronized manner by sending electrical pulses.

 

All these devices are life-saving and become a part of the lifestyle after pacemaker implantation which is also called heart pacemaker surgery. But, special care needs to be taken to ensure their proper functioning.
